Summary This research has established the presence of a natriuretic peptide system in the cardiovascular system of the toad, Bufo marinus. The presence of atrial natriuretic peptide mRNA and the peptide itself were shown in the heart which does not contain natriuretic peptide receptors in contrast to the large arteries and veins. In arteries these receptors mediated vasodilation. Atrial natriuretic peptide released from the heart may act on large arteries to regulate blood flow, but the action does not target the heart.
